The Legacy of Protest

1968 remains a landmark year for political and cultural activism. The assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, the Black Panther movement and ongoing campaigns against the Vietnam War caused revolt in the US and further afield. Academic Martin Halliwell joins us to discuss the legacy of that tumultuous year, detailed in his book Reframing 1968, examining modern protest movements.
